Hear the new Butterz mix for Red Bull Studios London

Whilst haters are the motivation for many in grime (voting for grimeforum.com's War Dub poll is still open) and plenty of upcoming producers in the genre's growing instrumental scene are intent on creating the coldest, darkest beats they can, Butterz foster a real family spirit and colour their releases and sets with influences from as close as bassline and garage and as far as R&B and jazz-funk. It's what makes them special and still, clearly, the best grime label around. 

Their core duo Elijah and Skilliam have been using the London Red Bull Studios for the past few months with a range of collaborators including Preditah, Terror Danjah, and Champion and much of that work features in this new mix of label history standouts, assorted favourites and unreleased tracks. One of the jewels in its crown is the VIP of Flava D's double A single 'Hold On/Home' featuring Royal-T and P Jam, set for the release on September 30th. You can also catch the gang at Alibi on the 27th for their monthly night Jamz and later in November at Fabric for their bigger marquee event
